Trip to the apple orchard

This was the first time the boys and I have ever gone apple picking. And even though the day ended up costing just a wee bit more than the all inclusive $5 advertised and Alex had a meltdown of epic proportions, we had a great time with our new friends Kelley, Owen, and Chloe!

We started out in orchard. It was really neat that the trees were kept dwarf sized so that the little ones could reach the apples.

After picking apples we headed over to the ginormous slide. All of the kids really enjoyed this part!

After the slide, we headed over to the zip line....

and this is when things started going wrong.

Alex was getting tired and frustrated that we didn't stay on the slide all day.

And then it went really wrong on the tricycle path. Even though Ben tried to help his little brother out, he had already reached the point of no return.

It was at this point that I realized I had become "that mother". You know, the one everyone is staring at because their child is screaming at the top of his lungs and I can't control him. I was at a total loss as to what to do.......so I took his picture while he was having a throwdown in the gravel :)

Fortunately a hot dog, some water, and snuggles in my lap calmed him down enough to watch the pig races.

As I said, overall it was a great time and we have plenty of apples for an apple pie, or two, and will likely go back next year.....maybe without Alex ;)

1 thanks for stopping by, i love comments!:
